About Me

Find me on Facebook and/or Instagram and send me a friend request.


My name is pronounced as "Jong-meow". But you may see people calling me Enrique or Volodya in the references. Yes, those are my Spanish name and my Russian name, which I do prefer to be called by native speakers.

Please check out this video about my hometown, the 4th largest city in China:

I used to help a startup with their app "Findyr" expand their user group in China and manage their projects in Latin America, East Europe, Middle East and North Africa, and South Asia. Please try this free app if you have never done before, it's fun and gives you the opportunity to earn some money simply by completing surveys with your smartphone.

Now I work as general manager in a career consulting firm. Please check our website for more details:


My life is as vivid as my paintings.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My CS journey began in Shanghai, China. I was totally insipred by the movie Taipei Exchange and decided to join in CS, although I had already heard of CS 6 years before I watched that movie.

Later I continued my CS in New York City. Meeting new people and making friends from all over the world is essentially the theme of my life here.

Here I am back to Shanghai and hope to host more couchsurfers.


I studied several languages at school and with my foreign friends. I am fond of playing piano, flute, Chinese bamboo flute. I like dancing very much, including ballet, modern dance and Latin dance etc. If you can dance salsa, bachata and merengue, let's party! Also, I like watching movies and travelling around the world. I also have huge enthusiasm in cooking.

Music, Movies, and Books

There are dozens of movies I enjoy, especially those directed by famous directors.
I like classical music as well as pop and electronic.
I read European literature a lot, mainly the works during and after the Enlightenment.
